About the APS

The Ancient Philosophy Society was established to provide a forum for diverse scholarship on ancient Greek and Roman texts. Honoring the richness of the American and European philosophical traditions, the Ancient Philosophy Society supports phenomenological, postmodern, Anglo-American, Straussian, Tübingen School, hermeneutic, psychoanalytic, queer, and feminist interpretations of ancient Greek and Roman philosophical and literary works.

It is the intention that, within the larger aim of assessing the meaning and significance of ancient texts, the Ancient Philosophy Society serve as the site of critical engagement among these various schools of interpretation and that it encourage creative and rigorous independent readings.

One thought on “About the APS”

  1. Hello, I’m a scholar of early Christianity trying to trace the idea of ‘mental pregnancy’ from the Symposium and Theaetetus up to the 4th cent. CE. Does anyone know anything about the history of that metaphor? Thanks! Kate
